The Gilda Ray, Shake It Up Shannahan


Published November 1925


Irish bagpipe solo, unknown piano player, Columbia 33070-F. O'Nolan billed himself as the "Wicklow Piper," but his piping seems to have little in common with famous Leinster pipers such as the Doran brothers or Leo Rowsome; his charming punchy style is much more reminescent of others who recorded in America such as Tom Ennis. O'Nolan recorded a few piping solos in 1925-26 but his subsequent recorded output over the next five years were vocal discs, backed by a piano, sometimes with clarinet and violin thrown in. O'Nolan recorded Gilda Ray at the same session as a pipes solo (no piano), curiously enough. That recording is also available on this website. Shake It Up Shannahan has a title suggestive of a vaudeville song, and reminds of a half-familiar reel melodically; what the title of that reel is I'm not certain but it may be stashed away in one of the old tunebooks.
